***Self-Guided Trip Planning

More good news: Big Bend is reopening most unpaved roads and most designated primitive campsites as of September 29. All paved roads and nearly all popular trails, including those in the Chisos Mountains, are also open for day use. The Chisos Basin Campground remains available by advance reservation. Please note that you MUST make a reservation in advance to be able to stay overnight inside the park. See the main Big Bend National Park website, www.nps.gov/bibe , for full information on what's open and how to reserve a campsite. ?? The river within park boundaries will also be open for day trips using put-ins and take-outs that can be accessed from paved roads. ?The bad news: Bookstores and visitor centers are expected to remain closed for several weeks. If you intend to visit Big Bend during the phased reopening, planning ahead is crucial to a safe trip. In addition to one or more of the following guidebooks, we highly recommend consulting the park's main website frequently for important safety updates.
